Hometown newspaper blasts Missouri Republican Senators for claiming they’ll fix something they intentionally broke

Published

on

The Kansas City Star editorial board blasted Sen. Roy Blunt and Senator-elect Josh Hawley for their contradicting stance on healthcare.

After a Texas judge ruled that Obamacare shouldn’t survive, both Senators quickly changed their opposition of Obamacare to that of odd support.

“Suddenly, Blunt says we needn’t worry because that’s not really going to happen. Wait, but aren’t you the Roy Blunt who spent years calling for just this outcome?” The editorial board at The Star wrote.

In addition, the newspaper blasted the entire GOP for trying to save a program they worked so hard to gut. Republicans voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act over 70 times over the course of 8 years, without offering a replacement.

“After all the energy Republicans have spent undermining efforts to lower health care costs, improve access and protect those with pre-existing conditions, who better to save these protections than those who’ve worked so hard to make sure the law didn’t work as it was supposed to?” they wrote.

Published

President Donald Trump's eldest child and namesake has published a book about liberals he says are "triggered" by conservatives. Ironically, it seems Donald Trump Jr. is the one who seems to be triggered by the reception he's getting from some on his book tour.

The hashtag, #TriggerDonaldTrumpJr has nothing to do with Jr's new book, rather it's progressives using his book title to mock the Trump child. Internet users were torn between mocking the young Trump for desperately trying to get his father's attention, scrambling to seem relevant, trying to launch his own political career, trying to make his own money and so much more.

‘Blather and hysteria’: Conservative columnist explains why GOP anti-impeachment ‘antics’ just crashed and burned

Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio, Rep. Devin Nunes of California and other House Republicans were clearly trying to rally the Trumpian base on Wednesday, when the impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump offered its first public testimony. Jordan and Nunes aggressively tried to discredit the inquiry and the two witnesses who testified: diplomat William B. Taylor (U.S. ambassador to Ukraine) and Deputy Assistant Secretary of State George P. Kent. But conservative Washington Post opinion writer Jennifer Rubin, in a Wednesday column, stressed that House Republicans — for all their “antics and conspiracy theories” — failed to show why Trump shouldn’t be impeached, while House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff and other House Democrats showed why he should.
